Defence Extends Distributed Computing Centralised Services Contract for a Further 3 Years

Fujitsu Australia Limited

Canberra, February 13, 2014

Fujitsu announces the Australian Department of Defence has extended its Distributed Computing Centralised Services (DCCS) Contract with Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand for an additional three years.

The Department of Defence is investing heavily in driving significant performance improvements and efficiencies across its network, desktop and data centre environments. It is expecting a peak of ICT activity during 2014-15 due to a number of significant projects planned for this period.

The DCCS contract extension with Fujitsu, which is worth approximately $170 million over a 3-year period, includes provision of Service Desk, Service Catalogue, Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) tools support, processes, and resource based tasking for server and desktop, email and groupware.

Mike Foster, Chief Executive Officer for Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand, said: “We have engaged in a major transformation program that is helping Defence better manage and optimise change within its ICT environments. Service Management is a core focus for us across the region and this engagement highlights the strength of Fujitsu across this domain. We view the contract extension as confirmation of the excellence of our service delivery to Defence - one of our most significant customers in this region. In the 16 years of engagement with Defence we have invested in the development of a dedicated workforce for the Department that currently numbers over 500 people.”

Defence has exercised the contract extension under the existing Fujitsu Distributed Computing Centralised Services contract.
